  Unexpected beauty

I love those moments that catch you off guard, take your breathe away and let you appreciate the world we live in even if it’s just for a moment before plans and responsibilities pull your head down again.

I live for long drives. Looking out of the window and imagining all that could be or could never be, it’s irrelevant. A good soundtrack can turn a journey into therapy or a party depending on the company. Be it scream out loud, off key, heart racing or golden sunshine, eyes half closed peace, it is a chane for you to sit back and take a breather.

These are the moments that make me happy, that I suddenly remember and that make me smile. I only wish life was full of more in the moment moments and not in the future moments, but I guess you just have to make the most of the ones you’re given.

  • “Unnecessary” birth control.
  • Countless other excuses to get those who don’t want change to get their way.

I am reached the point where I almost can’t even fathom how people are like that. How can you take funding away for something like that? How can you tell a woman, who is looking for a way to PREVENT pregnancy, that she is wrong? How can you tell a young man wanting to have safe, PROTECTED sex that he is wrong for getting FREE condoms when he might not have any other resource in which to get some?

I can’t change people’s mind about their decisions, but I can say this: Planned Parenthood PREVENTED more pregnancies last year…
